I can see why the Breakers is popular - the location is wonderful and the rooms are spacious and spotless. The kitchenette in our room was well stocked and the gas fireplace was a welcome surprise after our travels through a snow storm. The towels were plentiful and fluffy but my husband lamented the lack of quality soap and any... More

I've never felt so welcomed. Even had my dog with me - and the lake is right there! The office is quite small but efficient. The owners are wonderful people, although not always there. Go walking on the beach - right next to Cobourg's main beach, and Victoria Park. Cobourg is "The Feel Good Town"!! Oh, Oh; it wasn't a... More

The Breakers is a clean, reasonably priced, well-maintained property just steps from Lake Ontario. We had a basic room with two double beds and a kitchenette. The water pressure in the shower could have been better but otherwise we were very pleased and look forward to a return visit. Hopefully, next time, we'll be able to book a room with... More

Stayed with my husband last year on New Years 2014 while visiting my parents, we stayed in a room number 7 or 10, and we've already just made plans again for this upcoming year, so excited! The owners are awesome, and very helpful... the hotel/motel has an amazing view of the fireworks on New Years Eve that Cobourg puts on... More

We stayed twice during our annual visit to our family near Ottawa. The location is great, next to Lake Ontario with its own private beach and in its own well-maintained grounds. The welcome is friendly and helpful. The only changes to our room from last year are a new coffee percolator and the kitchenette worktop now has fluorescent lighting. Lighting... More

The Breakers has been the scene of our annual family reunion, (about a dozen strong) for about a decade. It never fails to provide a welcome setting. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The outdoor areas have barbecues, fire pits picnic tables and lots of seating. The beach is sandy and clean. Cobourg itself offers all you need in... More

The weekend of March 28-30 was our team's year end hockey tournament and we needed 10 rooms. I had seen the Breakers sign when lost in Cobourg on a previous trip and called them up. Although they do not usually book hockey teams, they took a chance on us and I'm so glad they did. The service was exellent, with... More

We ended up at The Breakers just before Christmas due to loss of heat and hydro at our home in Toronto after the ice storm. With a toddler and a large dog, our options were limited. We couldn’t stay in our unheated home, but couldn’t find a pet-friendly hotel in the city. Along with two other family members, we escaped... More

A few of my friends and I went to this hotel for an overnight get away from the hectic Christmas schedule. Our room was perfect. It was clean and well appointed. Had all the amenities and you could see Lake Ontario from our big bright window. The staff are friendly and it is definitely a family run operation not a... More

In November, my husband and I were visiting family in Fenelon Falls and making a trip to Port Hope the next day. I checked out hotels in the area and this one sounded interesting, being right on the lake. We like small, unique, non-chain hotels when possible. They also accepted our tiny dog and it was very reasonably-priced. Our room... More
